The New Addition - A Bear Brown One Shot
Request for @lovelyphelpslover13
Bear waited impatiently as the pot on his mother’s stove was barely starting to simmer. His legs were itching to move. He’d waited, pacing back and forth, in large circles around the first floor of his parent’s cabin while the soup cooked.
“Mom…is it done yet?” He flipped his hair from his eyes, his hands on his hips. He knew Lottie wasn’t feeling well and wanted to get back to her as soon as possible.
“Sol, it needs just a few more minutes to come together. How sick is Lottie?” She asked; it was concerning to her when anyone in Browntown was ill, it didn’t happen that often and she couldn’t deny her motherly instincts.
“She’s not keeping anything down Mom, and she just looks…I don’t know…. Tired. I’m starting to worry. I’m hoping your magic soup will work wonders on her. “ He looked concerned himself, but lit up a little when complimenting Ami and she beamed back at him.
“Well, I don’t know if I called it magic…”But her smile gave her away. She stirred it once more more, smelling the aroma, “I’d say it’s done now.” She scooped some into a container, sealing the lid. Bear jumped up grabbing the container and spoon, kissing his mother’s cheek before racing out of the cabin. He jumped over the railing and sprinted for his treehouse. He called up for his wife, still getting butterflies in his stomach at the thought of seeing her.
She’d always done that to him, made him react in such a way. He kept thinking one of these days, life would just continue on, he’d see his wife and not feel like a giddy teenager, but it hadn’t happened yet, not one single time had he not looked at her in awe or felt honored to just be in her presence. She wasn’t as….extreme…as he’d fantasized about his partner being. At least not in the way he thought. Sure, she climbed trees with him, jogged with him through the forest, adoringly watching him roll around in the mud. But it was her spirit that he found to be the most extreme. She pushed him to try new things, things out of his comfort zone.
